Chicago. In the collective imagination, the legendary Chicago. The difficult times of prohibition and gangsters: Al Capone and Frankie Yale, the Untouchables led by Eliot Ness.
But beyond the myth, Chicago is one of USA’s most dynamic cultural centers and a showcase of the architectural revolution of the19th century. A city where European influences are deeply rooted and where one move from neighborhood to neighborhood as traveling through time. “The Loop”, the financial district, “Wicker Park” and its bohemian atmosphere … City of jazz, Chicago can be discovered at the rhythm of street music and savored at the any street corner in one of the many cafes of this great urban center oriented good food and cosy lifestyle.
This city prefers green spaces where creativity and art in general are prominent and flamboyant … Chicago ends on Lake Michigan, where the water seems to absorb all the urban excitement to offer us a next day even more dynamic always oriented toward modernity and the pleasure of living.
